Spicy Baked Zucchini Wedges
Recipe type: Side

Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 4 small zucchini
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon adobo seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon ground chipotle
  • ¼ teaspoon or more salt, to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper and spray with non-stick cooking spray. (I probably wouldn't use a silicone baking mat for this unless you have one specifically for this kind of thing.)
  2. Cut each zucchini in half through the middle (width) and then into wedges lengthwise to create "fries" about 4" long and ½" thick.
  3. Mix the oil, spices and salt together in a large bowl. Add the zucchini wedges and toss to coat with the spice mixture.
  4. Place the zucchini on the prepared baking sheet, leaving any excess oil/spice mixture in the bowl. Bake the wedges for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until they are just tender, but not mushy. (Trust me, you don't want them to be mushy!)
-Other spices such as cumin, cayenne, black pepper, paprika, garlic or onion powder, Old Bay seasoning, etc, can be used in place of the other spices.
-Finely grated lemon zest and fresh herbs can also be used.
